I finally got around to wall mounting my reciproca ting arm kinetic sculpture .  I need to do a few more things to make it presentab le, but it works and I'm pleased with the flywheel design.

Thank you gentlemen!  It took far too long because I lost interest when facing some obstacles that I didn't want to do.  If anyone else gets around to building one, I learned that horizonta l placement is important for these things to work.  The axis of the decorativ e flywheels needs to be a bit higher horizonta lly than the string connectio n points on the arms, otherwise the arms can topple and not recover for another cycle.  It's one of the "fiddling" things associate d with this mechanism .
